    Mary says she also lucked out during that tough period as her husband went ...

    The following is from a local newspaper.

    Mary says she also lucked out during that tough period as her husband went on a 2-month work stint overseas.

    "If he was in Singapore, I'd probably have crumbled and confessed everything."

    Is 'says' OK when the other verbs are in the past tense?

    Thanks.
